Defintely an enjoyable listen, but preferred the first and third books in the series more.
He is very dramatic which worked well with the dark aura of the story.
Oh yes! I would love to see Ciaran Hinds as Quirk. He is Irish and could easily portray the broody Quirk!
I have not read the print version, but have read many books by Flanagan. This is my first audio version of a novel by Ms. Flanagan and I was not disappointed. Kate Binchy really brought the story to life.
Not really, but only because I so looked forward to listening to it in the car while on my way to work. I wanted to make it last!
I am definitely a Maeve Binchy fan, but this was the first one of her novels that I have listened to rather than read the old fashioned way. I will most certainly download another as there is never enough time to read at home, so an audible book in the car is great and Maeve's novels are easy listening. My only complaint with this novel is the sound quality. The first half is fine, but the second half is terrible. At times it is muffled and the next tinny. You are still able to hear the dialogue, but it certainly is a distraction. I should note that this is the first time that I have experienced this with an audible book.
Like all Maeve Binchy novels, it is always about the characters and their development as well as how she develops relationships between the characters.
Yes, despite the sound problems.
The characters and how your opinion of them changes.
Definitely when the initially meek wife takes control.
The story was great, but Mr. Keeble's narration made it that much better.
The characters and narration
I don't know how he did it, be he managed to make each character unique in his or her delivery. Thoroughly enjoyed his narration.
When I first started listening, I wasn't sure that I was going to like it, but my goodness an I glad I did!
